The Last Words

On the last day we interviewed the students from Norway and from the Netherlands. We asked questions about the whole week.

First we interviewed Vilde Marie Handeland and Sol Marie Ronæs about their week in the Netherlands.

 

What was it that you enjoyed the most about this week?
- The thing we enjoyed the most was getting to know everyone.

What did you think of the city Eindhoven and the school?

- It was a cool city and we liked it because it was a total different city than in Moss, with cafes around almost every corner.

If you can change anything about the programm of the week, what would you change?

- If we could change anything we would like more spare time and more time in Amsterdam, because it is a really big city and we wanted to explore all of it. It would be better for the programm to stay a bit longer in the Netherlands.

Do you want to come back to the Netherlands?

- Yeah, we really want to go to the Netherlands again and see everyone again.

Vilde even said that she want to move to Holland and live on a houseboat. 

 Then we interviewed Frida Jøraholmen Andresen and Frida Trandem Holtan about their week.

 

What was it that you enjoyed the most about this week?
- The thing we enjoyed the most was the trip to Amsterdam and getting to know everyone.

What did you think of the city Eindhoven and the school?

- It is a cool school and the city is nice. 

Frida Jøraholmen Andresen also said that she liked the main hall of the school and all the parks in the city.

Frida Trandem Holtan said that Eindhoven had a lot to see and many more churches than in Moss.

If you can change anything about the programm of the week, what would you change?

- We would like to have more time in Amsterdam to walk around and no juggling.

Do you want to come back to the Netherlands?

- We definitely want to back and see more of the Netherlands.

And the last exchange student we interviewd was Henrik Aas Granviken.

 

What was it that you enjoyed the most about this week?
- I really liked Amsterdam and meeting new people and I liked eating "haring", an herring.

What did you think of the city Eindhoven and the school?

- The city was nice and the school was different than what I'm used to.

If you can change anything about the programm of the week, what would you change?

- I would have liked to have more free time.

Do you want to come back to the Netherlands?

- Yes I do, and I really want to see everyone again.

After these interviews we interviewed the students from the Netherlands about their week.

First we interviewed Renske van Genderen about her week.

What was it that you enjoyed the most about this week?
- I enjoyed the moments you had a conversation with your exchange student the most. It was fun to know what the thoughts of the Norwegians was about certain things, and in what way it differs from the way Dutchmen look at those things. The Norwegians were very open and easy going, so it was fun to hang out with them.

If you can change anything about the programm of the week, what would you change?

- It would be nice to change the busy schedule into a little less busy programm. Also shorten the schedule of the day we went to Amsterdam, because it was a long day of walking.

After hearing all their stories, are you now excited to go to Moss?

- I'm really excited to go to there, because I've never been to Norway before and I really want to try waffles with sausage. I'm also curious about the people, the food and the surroundings.

The second person we interviewed was Judith Geuvers.

What was it that you enjoyed the most about this week?
- Going to Amsterdam, and hanging out with the students from Norway and the Netherlands.

If you can change anything about the programm of the week, what would you change?

- The city walk on the last day. Because they already explored the whole city, and now they needed to do it again.

After hearing all their stories, are you now excited to go to Moss?

- Yes, I really want to go because I'm curious about what it is like there.

 

Then we interviewed Jelte Knossen.

 

What was it that you enjoyed the most about this week?
- To hang out with the Norwegian students and to show them the surroundings. Also talking about the differences between the Netherlands and Norway was really fun.

If you can change anything about the programm of the week, what would you change?

- It would be nice to have more free time during the activities and trips.

After hearing all their stories, are you now excited to go to Moss?

- Yes. I'm very excited to know how a regular day in Norway goes. It would be fun if we will be able to go skiing. I think it's also nice that during the week we are going to Moss, there will be only one nationality visiting the school. In our school we had an international week where students from different countries came to visit us. During certain activities such as the pubquiz it was very busy, because there were too much people.

 

At last we interviewed Nick de Boer.

What was it that you enjoyed the most about this week?
- To get to know some of the exchange students. Hanging out with the students was very cozy.

If you can change anything about the programm of the week, what would you change?

- A little bit more structure in the programm. A little bit less time during the activities so you are able to have more free time as a group.

After hearing all their stories, are you now excited to go to Moss?

- Very excited. I'm interested in how Moss, the landscape and an ordinary day in Norway look like. I would also like to see their cities.
